British police have arrested a man who is said to be connected to the recent subway attack. In that subway attack that happened just one day before his arrest twenty-nine people ended up being injured.

The suspect is being held under the Terrorism Act and is going to be questioned by authorities. Officers located him near a port that's supposedly right by the English Channel. It's not known if he was trying to flee the nation or if he was just trying to hide out in that particular area.

The explosive device used was apparently put inside a shopping bag then inside of a bucket. This means that there was a timer on it. It's being said that it could have very easily been a simple timer on the explosive device.

The threat level has also been increased. The result of the increase means that another attack can happen and that security, especially in London, has been increased. The threat level is reported to be at critical.

Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner said: “Again we saw a quick response from all the emergency services and transport staff. Since then, we have had teams of detectives and specialists working through the night on the investigation and officers throughout London mobilizing and providing an increased visible police presence – especially in crowded places.”

It has been reported that the investigators had images of at least one suspect from closed-circuit television.

This is also not the first time that a terrible attack has happened in the UK. In recent times attacks seems to be happening far more often.

In June attackers murdered and injured several people by using a van as a weapon. They drove into a crowded area of people. They also reportedly ran around with knives stabbing people.
